I speak not of kids going back to school, nor of Christmas–though that’s pretty okay too. I speak instead, of the official Leafs countdown. And, as of the time of this entry, the Leafs nation clock shows… 8 days, 13 hours, and 8 minutes to the first preseason game of 2006-07. And I *will* be home the night of September 18th, 2006. Or things will be hurt. Badly.
